Everyone else is doing it, so am I!

Free! Until Sunday!
I’m talking about the
Eroticon round ups! I am still on a massive come down and just have
not been able to start this post – what an amazing time. How fab to
be with people you don’t have to think quickly whether what comes
forth from your psyche via your mouth is appropriate – you can just
let it all hang out! Yay πŸ˜€ – and yes, this is the blog where I try
to name everyone and link to them so you can see how awesome they are
too… Eroticon is an erotica and sex writers’ conference.
*This just in – South Bank Seduction is an anthology of saucy stories from folks who attended last year’s Eroticon – free until Sunday!*
Friday night was spent
with my Brit Babes – an anniversary celebration as we conceived
this little group at last year’s Eroticon – we got together to help
boost each other and bring out more work as erotica writers. We are
Lucy Felthouse, Lily Harlem, Kd Grace, Kay Jaybee, Lexie Bay, EmmyEllis, Victoria Blisse and joined by the lovely Mr Kev MitnikBlisse.
It was so exciting to
meet with friends and colleagues and meet up with new people too. I
tried my best to go round and talk to people I hadn’t met before but
I think I only managed about 67%. I am endeavouring to catch up with
this task on good ol’ social media.
Fabulous, beautiful
Ruby Kiddle welcomed us and they keynote speakers, warned of
censorship and obscenity laws. (My notes from these sessions are
pretty much, I’m going to gaol!) – very interesting and a
little terrifying.
Yes, that place…
I went along to AshleyLister class – only to find myself giggling and being pretty basic
(along with my classmates I might add, not to mention the host!) but
through the hilarity, lots of lessons were learned and now I’m
trawling through my manuscripts and weeding out the crap. I made it
to the sex and spirituality talk with Kd Grace and Victoria – it
was a brilliant meeting of curious euphoric souls who are all
striving through many paths to describe, pretty much, the same
thing… that point… that space… it was awesome! I’m telling ya –
I’m writing a blog to explore my feelings on the massive subject…
watch this space – I may even start a series getting some opinions
from my fellow writers and you dear reader. So fascinating.
Now, here’s where the
days are merging and things may not flow as they ought. I went to a
copywriting talk by the gorgeous and spell binding Cara Sutra – She
captivated us for an hour with her advice for writing professionally
for the adult industry. Thanks Cara!
There were lots of
classes I had to miss because of timing and one that I especially
wished I could have managed the space time continuum more effectively
was Lily Hastings‘ guide to body parts. Knowing your arse from
another part of your body which I do not know as I missed the
workshop! She is soooooo lovely, bubbly and vivacious – we need a
whole weekend devoted to her energy!
I didn’t manage to stay
through the whole of Ecstatic BDSM with London Faerie though I heard
it was stunning.
We went for dinner and hung out with
people I gasp about when I think of them, so you can imagine my
delight! The Britbabes joined by Ashley, Vida Bailey (my new soul
crush), Janine Ashbless, MK Elliot, Jacqueline Brocker and Jeniffer Denys. Then the cocktail party
– I know, can it get any better???!!! Things began to get hazy –
I talked to so many awesome people – I’ll make a list at the end
with links so you can check them out… however, one was another
Tabitha, if by any miracle you are reading this, I didn’t get your
card, but I loved meeting you! Good luck with the writing πŸ™‚
Then things fell into
the delightful when a rather suave gentleman came up to our group and
asked if one of us was Tabitha Rayne? Why yes, (I almost
dropped my handkerchief) – well, this gentleman happened to have a
gift from me all the way from Oleander Plume in the US – guess what
it was? I’m not telling, but it smelled lovely and was nice and tight
πŸ˜‰ – hand delivered by the mysterious and lovely EA Unadorned
thank you. (That sounded a bit rude, I’m trying my best not to edit
it out…) Met Dale and Lee from ETO too…
God, I’m falling
apart…
Lily’s article in ETO and Renee’s spanker!

We got fab swag bags
with lovely things – books, lube, and even a gorgeous garter from
Emily Dubberly – thank you! I’m still wearing it with pride πŸ˜€ –
Oh and a fucking awesome spanking stick from Renee Rose!!
Sunday was eased in
gently with a sun filled breakfast on the canal – heavenly!
I went to KristinaLloyd’s flash fiction workshop – β€œFlash fiction is the clitoris
of literature!” amen. Amen! We got treated to readings from
delicious ladies Molly Moore and Janine Ashbless.
One of my favourite
things was getting Vida Bailly to myself for coffee in the sunshine.
I think I might have to keep her!
New books!
I met so many lovely
people – Fidencia Solomon is always a favourite – mwoah!
The readings and high
tea at the end of the weekend were a perfect finale. I can’t believe
it was Mister Gryphon and Harper Elliot‘s first time hosting together
– bravo! Quick shout out for Judith Watts‘ fab poetry.
Oh – the sponsers – fab! And everyone’s talking about Doxy massagers – read this awesome review from Girl on The Net
Now I think I am spent.
Utterly. I’m sorry if I left you out of this list – I will be
kicking myself for days over who I forgot to mention.

I’ve been told the
optimum number of words in a blog is 300 – so I’ve blown that big
time – if you are reading this – thanks for sticking with me πŸ˜€
